Description:

Our award winning programme ‘Interactive Family Dance’ (Essex Prize Challenge winners April 2017) has proven a reduction in social isolation with parents and carers with children between the ages of 0 -5 years of age and an increase in general health and well-being. The focus of our idea is to explore the impact that creative dance, paired with providing basic nutritional information in family centres/locations, can help address various health issues including childhood obesity, loneliness and isolation. We will advise, support and educate both young dancers and their parents/carers in a fun and non-patronising environment involving hourly dance sessions of physical activity. These will be followed by a space where families can come together, talk, discuss, make friends and socialise over a cup of tea and healthy snacks.
